Who Can Attend a DTPA Inspection?
Once you send out a DTPA notice letter, a common question is:
Who can attend the DTPA inspection?
The answer is that there is no answer. The statute is silent but of course, common sense and typical practice in Texas are that the defendant(s), their attorney and any experts they may think they need can and do attend DTPA inspections.
I have seen large home builders bring 8-10 people to a home inspection.
A very common occurrence is that in home cases where a home owner buys a used house from another person, the buyer does not like it when the home sellers attend the inspection. Nevertheless, the sellers, as defendants, are entitled to attend the inspection and really should attend.
